A New Leaf Gallery thanks the community and local business forsupporting its successful fundraiser for talented youth and their art teachers of Floyd County High School!

Close to $1000 was raised in this third annual fundraiser held Saturday, February 8 in downtown Floyd inside the Station. Funds are used to purchase art supplies and other necessities for the students. Art gift-baskets were raffled, door prizes won, and art, gift cards and donations from local businesses were auctioned.
